Most of the time, the winners of tournaments
are no real sportsmen, but losers who just were
lucky.

Bowling is like playing with a slot-machine!!!

Cheers guys,

Hi Darby,

Of course it was a troll.

My reply is to the Monty Python reference. I'm a big MP fan ever since
seeing Holy Grail at about age 5 (blame my parents). The skit PJ
references is a man goes in looking for an argument and all he gets is
contradiction (yes it is, no it isn't). Eventually he flips out and
gives a long diatribe defining and argument as a rationed set of
descriptions leading to an end, or some such blather. After a long
pause the other guys responds: No it isn't. It's a very funny skit.

Take home, just introducing a little humor ;-)

John (and everyone else): The clown who started this thread looks more
and more like a TROLL - looking for a Monty Python-esque "argument"
rather than a real discussion. As I initially responded - He strikes
me as a whiner and crybaby who "expects" to just pull out Any Old Ball
and immediately get 200+ games wherever he goes.

I personally think this thread should just "die a natural death, etc."

There is a big difference. All a slot machine has is a couple of buttons
and the computer has control over what it results. Therefore your only
control of the slot machine is just a button or 2, but it does not control
the results.

Bowling is different. You have control of your ball and how you shoot it
gives you the results based upon your shooting and physical ability. If you
know your lanes well and how to control your swing, ball, etc. you can
shoot some really high scores.

Just like golf, I imagine. These are the people who think hot dog
eating contest or poker are indeed sports.

This reads like someone who can't hit the "broad side" of a head pin
